- Summary: Eno sings! And while those words are sure to excite fans of the bald one's 70s classics such as 'Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy),' his first vocal album in 15 years is much closer in sound and mood to more recent efforts as well as the final handful of tracks on 'Eno Box II: Vocals' (the latter's "Under" even appears again on this disc).… Collapse

Another Day... slithers easily into the company of his greatest releases, with jaw-dropping melodies and flawless, Passengers-era production, creating a soundscape as ethereal as Another Green World. [#16, p.90]

JefCJul 1, 2005Yep, this is an absolute classic. Spine tingling stuff for eno fans.
AnthonyK.Jun 14, 2005I love this album. It blends so many sounds together with Eno's voice and is majestic.
RobHJul 9, 2005I love the calm serenity of this album and the meaning and poetry in the lyrics. Very moving.
StephenJAug 30, 2005When you have created masterpieces like Before and After Science, Music For Films and Music for Airports, not to mention Apollo...well I did anyway), It's extremely difficult to continue to produce works of a similar stature that will please the critics and the fans.No artist working with sound or images can churn out 'perfect' pieces of work on demand. I7m sure Brian would love to sit down at his synthesiser and say..".and now I'm going to produce another masterpiece." It just doesn't work like that..the nature of things is that you have success ,failure and .."well, I nearly did it!" situations. So it's unreasonable for us to expect perfection just because it's Brian Eno. (and Jane, if when the time comes,as it surely will, for you to hobble around with your own zimmer frame, i wonder if you will be able to look back on your accomplishments in life and find anything as significant and creditable as Eno's recording catalogue? Well, it's just a thought! ) I always thought the best thing about Eno's music is that ( if you allow it to) it allows your mind to wander where it will. It suggests and creates possibilities of thought and feeling without shouting at you like most Pop mush these days, I for one am happy that I have the option to listen to this as opposed to the often tuneless and repetitive noise of most modern day artists. in this light, I think Another Day On Earth is quite wonderful, it doesn't try too hard, it just is.It's not the best Eno, but it doesn't have to be. It is good enough...and after a hard day's work, a good meal and a hot bath is a perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of the day. Good stuff!… Expand
andycJul 6, 2005I found this latest offering from the self proclaimed professor of modern music as irritating and vacuously pretentious as the man and his writing have become in recent years. The music is an uninspired soulless debacle, as Brian audibly struggles to keep up with recording techniques he helped to seed.… Expand
